MLS roundup: middle finger, hat trick, goal from midfield, announcing fail, RFK woes, sweet strikes

So let me get this straight:

San Jose Earthquakes goalkeeper Jon Busch flashed his middle finger at a) Alvaro Saborio for his flop ; b) referee David Gantar for awarding a penalty; c) the entire Real Salt Lake team?

After a 3-1 loss to Everton in front of just 12,789, D.C. United is 0-4-4 in all competitions in the past eight matches at RFK Stadium?

Chivas USA’s Justin Braun has registered not one, but two hat tricks this season?

Thierry Henry scored this sensational goal to provide the New York Red Bulls with their 12th draw in 23 league matches?

Kosuke Kimura scored from beyond midfield for the Colorado Rapids?

The Rapids’ TV play-by-play announcer, upon acknowledging Chris Tierney’s sending off, actually said: “So the red card is an ejection, correct?”

Kei Kamara and Omar Bravo scored two goals apiece to maintain Sporting Kansas City’s unbeaten record at its new stadium (3-0-3)?

With a 1-0 win over the Portland Timbers, the Columbus Crew is tied for first place?

The Chicago Fire was leading Manchester United (before losing 3-1) in front of 61,000 at Soldier Field?

Thanks to Michael Farfan’s pretty chip, the Philadelphia Union kept it close with Real Madrid, 2-1, before 57,000 at Lincoln Financial Field?

Good times.....
